“Lovely for a summer holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Charming hotel cosily decorated in traditional style. Rooms worked well for a family of 5, kids loved the free wifi and the 3 English channels. Kitchenette adequate. Lovely outdoor pool, gorgeous views, very clean and perfect temperature. Our room faced west so perfect to come back to after a day out and watch the sun go down from our balcony. Great being on the edge of village as no noise, and uninterrupted views. Completely quiet at night, despite the hotel being full. Younger of the reception staff very smiling and welcoming, charming to the kids and couldn't do enough for us (sorry, should have asked your name), but the others not so friendly. The owner was a perfect gentleman helping us out when we had a flat battery - driving me to two garages in neighbouring villages to get us help. Very kind. THANK YOU!

Room Tip: The apartment for 6 is great.

Great place to stay. Really helpful staff. Really good apartment . Ours had three rooms and was ideal for one family but would be a squeeze for two. Views are fantastic and you can sit on the balcony and watch the sun go down Bus stop is 100m away and takes 8 mins to get to telecabin. You can also walk into the centre of samoens in 10 minutes. Use of a pool after a day at the slopes was an added bonus .Only thing to avoid is the breakfast that although tasty was overpriced for what it was. We had it on our first day and then walked into town on the rest

Lovely place, great location in an adorable village. Yards away from ski bus stop. Great facilties, pool, jacuzzi, spa and rooms with everything you need. It was such a pretty apart-hotel with gorgeous alpine style decore. Would definately come back. Worth staying here even if you want to ski in Flaine (to avoid the concrete jungle and get the best skiing experience). Staff v helpful.

This aparthotel, has everything, easy walk to town, couple of minutes to ski bus. But above all a truly helpful lady on reception 'Karine', I had a ski accident, and she helped with faxing documents and let us stay longer in the room on our booking out day. Lovely cosy room with everything you need if self catering, warm cosy and comfortable. Its a must go!

Just back from another great week at La Renardiere. Estelle and Carin have been joined by the delightful Veronique on reception - Estelle is now part time since the birth of her baby. The usual warm and friendly welcome, beautiful and comfortable apartment, peace and quiet - perfect. Made good use of the swimming pool, rarely more than one or two others in there, and the jacuzzi usually to ourselves. A few games of pool and table footie in the games room, the odd drink in the bar (the local Samoens brew is awesome. Thanks all - probably see you next year again.

Excellent apartment. Clean, warm. Comfortable. Very close to ski bus stop. Centre of village 5 minutes walk.
Only criticism - no oven and jacuzzi could be warmer, but overall i would thoroughly recommend the apartment

We've stayed in La Renardiere on 4 or 5 occasions over the last 8/9 years, and we're going back in 2013. The welcome from Estelle and Carine (my apologies if I've spelt those names wrongly) has always been excellent; warm and friendly. They cope admirably with my schoolboy French and answer my questions in perfect English. The bar is cosy and quiet - just the way we like it. If you want noisy apres ski pop in to one of the bars in town. The swimming pool is indeed often empty of people - bliss! Where else would you find a private pool at these prices? Breakfast is available on request - a bonus in what are essentially serviced apartments. We occasionally take advantage of that service, but more often take an early morning stroll into town to buy our own fresh pastries from the excellent bakery to go with the coffee we make for ourselves using the filter machine provided. It's common decency to have a quick clean of the apartment at the end of the stay, and we've never felt the need to have the room 'inspected', and have never been charged a cleaning fee. Fresh towels are provided midweek, and a big towel and bathrobe can be (very reasonably) hired for use in the pool. I should probably remain silent, and keep the secret of Renardiere to myself so that it doesn't become overcrowded - but I can't leave the unfair negative comments unanswered - or the rudeness to a lovely and kind individual
